Elizabeth Balcomb Artist Bio:

Elizabeth Jane Balcomb is a self taught South African artist known for her haunting figurative sculptures. Therianthropes are a recurring theme in her work. The daughter of a minister, Balcomb studied and worked in nature conservation before becoming a full time artist in 2010.. Her sculpting process is highly technical but her work displays a fluid, instinctive quality which institutional training may well have limited. “If I’d studied formally perhaps I would intellectualize the process more. I’m forced to rely on instinct in my effort to make the unconscious conscious”. Balcomb works in clay and casts limited editions into bronze. Learn more on her website www.elizabethbalcomb.co.za
